Grave Digger am Boom Openair

On Saturday, the 31. August, made the Open Air Boom its name, because there were Metal from Eluveitie and Grave Digger. The Tree Openair ist ein sehr junges Festival im Oberbaselbiet, genauer Diegten, which is probably due to its fresh on the trade market the spoiled Swiss audience simply too little known, the Advertising alone is not attracted enough attention and simply were announced this weekend too many other events. So sucked diese zwei grossen Names alleine nicht viele allzu Metalheads an, because, unfortunately, were estimated on this evening might 150 to 200 People present, um die zwei grossartigen Bands abzufeiern. But this was no reason for the audience to mope and the concerts were all top notch!

Personally, I was more than just this familiar framework right, I, the large Concert-Open-air anyway sooo not like it, for the organizers, the sparse audience but rather be a disaster have been. Damage, because the boom Open Air was really well organized, the visitors lacked neither food and drink, nor to the sanitary facilities and where other Festivals with expensive cashless systems this year so had their problems, showed the little open air the big operators, that can be used with a simple card trick, one for which 50 Franken could buy, to pay the rest of the evening without cash. The location was absolutely awesome and the staff extremely helpful and friendly. Since it is very unfortunate, that the organizers were not blessed with more viewers, because to be based on the existing visitor the two days have hardly paid and the implementation of a further boom in open air is probably more so than in the stars…

The evening was opened by 19:30 Clock first in Switzerland, The Frankfurt Quietschboys, which sealed her skirt and played to the point with Hessian dialect texts to international hits such as „Nothing else matters“ from Metallica (I'll be fat), „Angie“ The Rolling Stones (Hähnche), „Have a nice day“ Bon Jovi (I sauf schee me) or „Thunderstruck“ by AC / DC (Günther Strack) the audience einheizte properly. The guys did their job quite well, although I personally such cover versions and comedy- or Fun-metal à la J.B.O. less satisfied. The light rain started, who stopped again fortunately after a short time, then let us go under the tent and indulge in the culinary offerings. At about. 21:30 Clock then put the Swiss metal band Celtic Eluveitie going on as usual and was able to pull the audience right from the beginning in its spell. Since most of the existing visitors were there for exactly this band, This concert was an absolute home game and the band was clearly motivated. A clean Concert, in which the spark immediately leapt to the audience and for the next almost 2 Hours really brought the fire to blaze. As always offered Eluveitie an absolutely brilliant show!

Grave Digger

At about. 23:30 Clock it was eerily dark walked on stage as the stage of the Reaper. With a bagpipe intro voted us the Grim Reaper on the appearance of a Grave Digger. The masked keyboardist Hans-Peter Cat Castle walked it slowly across the stage and prepared the audience with the intro to the title track of their latest album „Clash of the Gods“ before. What came next, really was more than impressive, if one keeps in mind, that Gravedigger for over 30 Years are active and all the dominions no 20 are more. From the start, the Gravedigger rolled over with frontman Chris Boltendahl the remaining audience, Unfortunately, some were already gone back after the performance of Eluveitie. Grave Digger knüppelte with crystal clear sound and a lot of pressure from their numerous classics. In the framework of highly precise rhythm bassist Jens Becker and Stefan Arnold, guitarist Axel Ritt was a virtuoso romp. It was amazing, as squeaky clean Axel was able to play the most demanding passages and thereby kept quiet for a minute, but feared and raged like a dervish. Not to mention Chris Boltendahl, whose raspy voice sounded fresher than ever and looked in top shape physically. It was an all around great show with great entertainment. The gentlemen have played songs across their albums, and finally there were three encores. What the fans got to see this evening, was phenomenal. Frontman and founding member Chris Boltendahl and his men have rocked the stage par excellence and it would treat the artists and the organizers, if the audience would have been more numerous…
